Where is the loyalty and self discipline today that is taught in the Word of God to maintain the order and security within our homes and our nation? Where are the morals of individuals today in our leadership and in our youth that are simply displaying something far from what is right by God and allowing their own spirits to run wild? Why are men and women in leadership positions not simply standing up in faith to proclaim what is simply right and wrong by God? Have we drifted so far that we can no longer stand for who we are as a child of God? Are we too worried about the loss of votes or the redicule that we may receive from the world in return? Since when did God say to give in and forget how to stand?
Soloman teaches us in Proverbs 25, “Whoever has no rule over his own spirit, is like a city broken down without walls.” And Jesus tells us in Matthew 10,”But whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father.” Within the Old Testament and the New God instructs us to maintain our self discipline through His Word and to never fall weak to the world in order to maintain what God has given.
There is strength and security received by God when we learn to be obedient to His Word. Within this security we develop a deeper sense of love through Jesus Christ who teaches us how to serve one another instead of only serving ourselves. Think about it; “If our home is out of control and we are constantly struggling to survive then how can we honestly develop a deeper relationship with the ones we love?” Does this not make us vulnerable to the ones that want to see us fall and to the ones that are simply seeking self gain?
The best treasure that we can ever receive here on this earth is the experience in true love that deepens our relationships with God through others. There is no better gift than to receive this treasure in the true love of Jesus because what else can out last the love that we receive? It is my sincere prayer that America learns how to stop and listen to recognize the signs and to see what we are missing. Who wants to build something without the glue that holds all together? Building is something that we should not do for the gain but for the love of serving others to protect what God has given…
